Meanwhile...

 

Bitcoin is back up to $130 (http://www.xe.com/currencycharts/?from=XBT&to=USD&view=1W).

People are spamming the wallet that the FBI siezed (renamed "Silkroad Seized Coins") with 0.00000001 BTC transfers, using the Public Notes field to voice their opinions (http://blockchain.info/address/1F1tAaz5x1HUXrCNLbtMDqcw6o5GNn4xqX?offset=100&filter=0#).
